I promised to make the kids some brownies, THEN discovered I am out of sugar (even my emergency stash is empty!) Can I substituted the same weight of 6X for regular sugar?

I don't see why not even though I have never used it in exchange except for making home made whipped cream and that worked out great. I would try it, how bad can they be?

Here is tons of information regarding ALLLLL kinds of sugar.
At a quick glance, I'm saying yes, but that you might want to adjust how much you use because it's been processed a bit more.

6x means it is powdered sugar that has been sifted 6 times before packaging. 10x is usually best for icings.

It also contains a certain amount of CS to prevent caking. I think they will wind up gummy, but I like chewy fudgy brownies.
